MC Hammer is claiming he was a victim of racial profiling after he was arrested for allegedly obstructing and resisting an officer in Northern California.
His upsetting tweets were a sure fire sign of how upset he was.
"Greater Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds" ... So true ������— MC HAMMER (@MCHammer) February 23, 2013
He was angry enough to call the cop ‘fat boy’ and make fun of him in a very snide manner:
I will now answer his question, contrary to his personal beliefs, all people of color are not on parole or probation fat boy !!!— MC HAMMER (@MCHammer) February 23, 2013
chubby elvis looking dude was tapping on my car window, I rolled down the window and he said'"Are you on parole or probation?"— MC HAMMER (@MCHammer) February 23, 2013
You have to know me to understand I was laughing when he was grunting and pulling on me .. I had just left the weight room ..— MC HAMMER (@MCHammer) February 23, 2013
It was comical to me until he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help (MallCop) !!!But make no mistake he's dangerous ..— MC HAMMER (@MCHammer) February 23, 2013
While I was handing him my ID he reached in my car and tried to pull me out the car but forgot he was on a steady donut diet. ..— MC HAMMER (@MCHammer) February 23, 2013
Still, he says he is not bitter!
Instead of being bitter, I'm taking the opportunity to make this a "teachable moment" and "eye opener" for my many friends & colleagues.— MC HAMMER (@MCHammer) February 23, 2013
I think we would beg to differ here. Bitter he is. He has every reason to be, of course and he got full support from his fans as well.
The police however, say, “He had expired registration on a vehicle that was not registered to him. He refused to give the officer any information on the owner. MC Hammer became very argumentative and continued to refuse to answer any questions about the vehicle."
Whatever the case may be, we have one party’s word against the other. But celebrities have been known to break laws and get busted.The police unfortunately does not have a clean slate as well when it comes to treating people with the respect they deserve irrespective f their status or race.
However, it’s time to put it back now, out of focus and concentrate on all the good that is happening in his life and around him.
